Wine and Dine in Sussex

We opened our fine dining Tasting Room Restaurant in summer 2018 when we launched our first vintages of Sussex Sparkling wines, and this year it was awarded The Plate Michelin 2020. Our goal is to provide Sussex with a gastronomical treasure, serving authentic British cuisine that pairs perfectly with our Sussex Sparkling wines.

Located within our Sussex Heritage award-winning Winery, the Tasting Room Restaurant boasts panoramic and breath-taking views of the Vineyard and South Downs. Head Chef, Chris Bailey, and his team serve a new take on contemporary, ingredient-focussed British cuisine, using the finest seasonal produce available from the land, sea and garden of the British Isles.
